First up, Desmond and Darryll take a long look at the misguided-but-compelling medical conspiracy thriller Coma. Then Devil Dinosaur Jr. Stays Scary when he reviews the hospital-set slasher Visiting Hours. Desmond comes back to go solo on the body horror-comedy Bad Milo! And, just in case you're still feeling under the weather, Doctor Dread prescribes the following music therapy: "Witchdoctor" by Clutch, "Girl in a Coma" by Fit For Rivals, "I Hate" by Overkill, "Ride the Flying Polyp" by The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, and "Death is Not the End" by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

335: Inheriting a legacy can be a great thing, but not if the legacy you inherit is one of death and terror. That's what we're looking at this week. The girl is troubled, but is it her fault or are her father's murderous inclinations speaking through her hands? Does an obsession with horror films lead the impressionable to murder? Can a man's mission to find his ancestor's creation lead to anything but death? All these questions are explored as Darryll and Desmond review the Hammer film Hands of the Ripper, Devil Dinosaur Jr. explores the under-appreciated 80s film Fade to Black, and Desmond goes solo on found-footage homage Frankenstein Theory.

323: Warning: The podcast you are about to listen to contains scenes of a sexual nature, extreme violence, Satanism, and Tom Hanks crying in a phone booth. This week, we take a look at bad influences in media. Films, video games, comic books, and rock music have all been blamed for society's ills. On this episode we're examining some of those. Desmond and Darryll team-up on a film that explores the bad influence a sinister song can have on the women of the world: The Lords of Salem. In a brand new Stay Scary, Devil Dinosaur Jr. reviews the animated adaptation of a comic book that was partially blamed for the Aurora theatre shooting, and is often blamed for the darkness of comics in the 1980s and 90s: The Dark Knight Returns. Then, in a wild condemnation of role-playing games, Tom Hanks, in his first starring role, overacts his way to Damien and Desmond's hearts as they review Mazes and Monsters. The songs this week run from those inspired by the subject to soundtrack items, protest songs, and even those deemed obscene to the PMRC: "The Lords Theme" by John 5 and Griffin Boice, "Crushing the Ritual" by Leviathan the Fleeing Serpent (AKA Rob Zombie and John 5), "The Darkest One" by The Tragically Hip, "Startin' Up a Posse" by Anthrax, and "Into the Coven" by Mercyful Fate.
